Update: Norrington, Dorff Teaming on Blade Spin-Off


A new trilogy with Frost?

The Sunday Mail reports that Blade director Stephen Norrington and Stephen Dorff, who played villain Deacon Frost in the film, are working on a prequel trilogy.

“It will be a prequel to the Blade movies, Deacon’s story,” Dorff said, “It’s a new trilogy the director has created. It will be cool. We hope to shoot the first film next year. Frost is a character I have never been able to shake.”

Norrington has confirmed the news to Comics2Film, saying the project is “not exactly how the article describes but close.”

The director credits Dorff with coming up with the idea for the new project, which “has evolved into a very interesting story… The linkage to ‘Blade’ is still big in the equation.”

The original Blade, which starred Wesley Snipes, earned $131.2 million at the worldwide box office and was followed by two sequels. Norrington hasn’t directed a film since 2003’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
